Hats, fancy dresses, and plenty of smiles at Roche Harbor Resort's Easter Egg Hunt

Roche Harbor Resort's gardens were picture perfect Easter Sunday as dozens of children waited for the signal to begin hunting for the silver and golden eggs. One of each were hidden in the three gardens ready to be exchanged for baskets and large stuffed animals. The other prize up for grabs was the jar containing 2,933 jelly beans and a $100 bill  to the person who was the closest to guessing the number. This year three people guessed 3,000 which was the closest to the actual number. While there was only one jar of jellybeans, Roche Harbor provided three $100 bills. One extra lucky family took home the red jar of jellybeans.

Friday Harbor Middle Schooler wins Rotary Spelling Bee; Paideia student takes second place

Thirty-five middle school students from Orcas and San Juan Islands took the stage Wednesday afternoon at Friday Harbor Presbyterian Church for the annual Rotary Club Spelling Bee. By the end of the third round, the field was reduced by half. Shark was the first word that eliminated a competitor. It was spelled correctly but the speller forgot to say the word before spelling it. This technical error played a part in five competitors leaving the stage. The words were significantly more difficult in each of the five rounds.
